Visual Inspiration in Bologna

There’s a LOT to look at in Bologna. Giant glowing versions of book covers line walkways, book-covered shelves form the walls of each booth, signs dangle from the ceiling. Amidst all of this visual stimuli, our Art Director Jet found some visually stunning covers and artwork both at the fair and in Bologna bookshops!

Outside the main exhibition hall, there was a gallery of art by carefully selected children’s illustrators on display. Here are a few of Jet’s favourites:


By seesaw, Japan.


By Ha Yeon Jung, Korea.


Felt characters by Holman and Jack Wang, Canada.


By Violeta Lopiz, Spain.

And some special bookshop finds:

  1. I love the felt characters! 🙂 Is that Elizabeth Bennet reading Darcy’s letter by any chance?
